Wall Art

Large Scale Building Decoratives

Many urban building have become the palette for artists that specialize in huge posters and murals. Some of this amazing artistry regularly adorn our cities and inject life and color into our cityscapes.

Here are a few of those projects that I’ve captured on film.

Wildlife Photography

Fauna in the U.S.A.

My “serious” photography adventures have me lugging a couple of cameras and a few lenses into the wild outdoors.

A long lens lets me capture four footed or slow moving animals in the field easily if I remember to be patient.

I’ve found that capturing flying birds with a camera are one of the most challenging endeavors. Fast moving birds are difficult to track with a long lens and using a shorter lens produces smaller subjects in the image.

I’ve thrown away countless images of wildlife that were blurry, poorly exposed, badly composed, etc. Below are a few that I’ve kept over the years.

Trains and Rail

Daily Commutes and Long Haul Freight

Previously one of my jobs was to develop simulation software for popular personal computers. While our main business was making flight simulation products, we were also involved with train simulation.

To do this, we spent a considerable amount of time researching railroad operations. Following are some of the photos that we captured to help us with various simulation projects.

 

Hopefully these pictures illustrate the extensive use of railroads across the globe.
